Tons of fun for the whole family! Lovely exhibits help kids (and adults) visualize scientific concepts. Staff are friendly and helpful. Gallery 5 has fun build-it-yourself type activities for kids. Gallery 6 is an indoor playground for kids under 6 with a water play area. Pity we came a little late so we missed the shows. Highly recommended! We will definitely come again if we're back in canberra!
BEST PLACE EVER!!!!! It's amazing. I was determined to go on the slide but when I saw it and saw some people do it I was almost freaked out. As my bus group walk to sit down see what we were doing we walk past a robot that waves at me and my friends as we sat and waiting. It was so cool. We saw lots of amazing things. On a level everyone saw lighting and it was so cool I feel like I want to see it again, it look almost like really lightning. U should bring your children there but be careful not to loose them. It's a really big place.
Amazing building, plenty of activities that educate kids as well as adults. It's science goes back to the past and shows the modernised technology of the future. Fun rides and interesting games intrigue children and provide the most enjoyable way to learn. There is a souvenir shop to bring some your experience back with you with toys and gadgets for all ages. A school trip here would be fun and helpful to kids and teachers.
Spent 5 hours here today. With lunch. Excellent for the kids! Lots of things to do, lots of learning. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Food from the cafe was really good. Just love this place. Hadn’t been here since I was a boy, so taking my own kids was nice. The Gravitram was still there!
Great place to spend a day in Canberra, especially with kids. Caters to all ages, there's something for everyone. Very accessible layout, and you can get reciprocal entry from membership in a number of other science museums around the country (the website has more info).
